1983-84 Alan Kerr Seattle Breakers Game Worn Jersey
Lot #204

This home white knit gamer by Cooper was worn by Alan Kerr during the 1983-84 WHL season. The New York Islanders selected Kerr in the 4th round of the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. After a spectacular junior career with Seattle in the WHL, Kerr cracked the Isles lineup in 1984-85. This RW remained on the Island for parts of 7 years before completing his career with stints in Detroit and Winnipeg. Despite being less than 6 foot tall, this tough winger was more than happy to drop the gloves as evidenced by 6 seasons of triple digit PIMS, a career best 198 PIMS coming in 1987-88. Kerr’s 391-game NHL career saw him compile 826 PIMS.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, heavy inner pilling, fight abuse with washed out bloodstains and a trauma laden front collar and runs showing the effects of tugging and pulling. Perhaps best of all is the original nameplate that is sewn high across the verso. Kerr’s last season of juniors saw him play in 66 games while lighting the lamp 46 times and adding 66 assists for 112 points to go along with 141 PIMS, quite an impressive year by the youngster. The Breakers existed for 8 seasons spanning 1977-78 to 1984-85 while wearing several different styled uniforms along the way. Any Breakers jersey is typically a very tough get. This however, is the first time we’ve seen an all-original Seattle Breakers jersey with name on back in the hobby. It is also the first time we recall any Seattle Breakers gamer at all coming up for bid at Major Auction. A terrific battered example, complete with letter of honor and worn by a former NHLer that qualifies as a true hobby rarity!
